I love it!  Was your FMIL expecting something more princessy?  I’ve found that it’s hard to get people who are expecting a whole lotta dress to be excited about something simpler.

I like it. I think your FMIL might have been execting a lot more dress.

@deedeelicious:  Honest opinion? I think it’s a gorgeous dress and it looks gorgeous on you, but I would make a few adjustments.

Would it be possible to get a little bit of extra fabric to make a wider, matching strap for your left shoulder? It would make the dress look more balanced, and you could wear a bra with it to give you a little extra lift.

If she thinks the dress doesn’t look bridal enough, you could accessorize with a more substantial necklace and a cuff-style bracelet. Are you wearing a veil? That would certainly give you a very bridal look.

ETA: Definitely stick with this dress. You don’t need “more” dress, and you certainly don’t need to get a dress that looks like her daughter’s.

It’s beautiful and looks really great on you.  I agree with the other bees, maybe she was expecting something more traditional, something that screams wedding… but it’s your wedding and if you love the dress that’s all that matters!

I think it looks great! It’s classy and sweet. I’m sure your FMIL was expecting something different because there are SO many styles of wedding dresses out there. Who knows, she might have been expecting something covered in bling or a huge ballgown. Don’t let her reaction get you down!

@deedeelicious:  I love the dress it’s simple and pretty.  My only thought is shortening the straps so that it looks a bit more pulled up.  Otherwise, from what I can see your hair flower the shoulder flower and I really like that.  Will you wear earring and a bracelet? I think those things will take it up a notch.  As long as you feel happy when you put it on, nothing else really matters.

I already like it and I think it will be great with the alternations and accessories that you mentioned! Glad JCrew worked out for you, I was sure I was going to wear their Corrina gown but once I got it, it felt nothing like I had imagined.

Just curious, is your FMIL usually a very verbal person when it comes to feedback? Was her response completely out of character? I’m just wondering as one of my BM’s isn’t very good at giving feedback, even if she likes something it’s just not in her nature to really voice it.
